I have a friend of a client inquiring about setting up a psychic reading site, and I'm wondering if this is koser with the adsense TOS. I couldn't find anything about it. You never know. They nitpick over everything.

Won my bet ..again..( some people are "cut-out", to be able to use adsense..some are not, think hard*..your posts, suggest, you.. may not be )<="observation"..

*G can ban you at their discretion..why try to "push it"..and why be so disparaging in relation to their TOS..especially for a self confessed "newbie"**..( as netmeg says.."it is what it is" )..no-one forces any of us to add the code..

The fact that a self confessed "newbie" is already saying that they have "clients"..shows what the SEO world ( and online in general ..adsense in particular ) has come to..learn to walk, before you start taking on clients and telling them how to run would be my advice..

No, you're right. I need to settle down. From now on, you won't hear another peep out of me.

Isn't the idea either..at the top of each forum is a link to "library"..you'll find that 98% of what you are asking about has probably been asked about before..even 98% of what irritates you has probably been asked about before..so ..check out the library links in each forum..and if what you are looking for isn't in them..then..
Write out in "normal" ..everyday language..what you want to ask..and put the sentence into your favorite search engine..most times you'll actually get answers in the first two or three pages of SERPS..( and when you don't..what you do get will tell you a lot about SERPS )..if you add at the end of the sentence..webmasterworld..

Like..how do I make a site map webmasterworld ..

You'll get back in SERPS all the threads here about how to make site maps..and if they don't answer your questions 100% ..you'll at least be able to formulate your questions more accurately.. to get answers..

From the topic title: - This has gotta be sheer G-O-L-D for an Australian....
Can I set up a psychic reading site with adsense ads?

I'd opine the "psychic" just failed every professional test [for psychics] known the mankind.

Miserably.

Now if any one of us were stupid enough to consult a "psychic", we'd get what we richly deserved.

When a "psychic" asks questions....

It's just T-O-O funny...

I'm still laughing.

OK. Seeing it's not April Fools, it has to be a set up surely!

The trouble with looking up old threads on a topic is that things change on the web and people like Google quietly move the goalposts over time.

Well Google's goalposts can be found here: [google.com...] fill in where your billing address is and they'll tell you what applies to you. Moreover they do not move them quietly: they make you accept them all over if they change them.

IMHO: "psychic": it's a scam. It's nothing but fraudulent abuse.

Granted, offering psychic-anything online is pretty hilarious-- though not really any more implausible than astrology (in any location) if you start over-analyzing. But as a legal principle, "unintelligent people deserve to have bad things happen to them" is not a whole lot more defensible than "small and weak people deserve to get beaten up".

I wonder if knowing someone is going to click on an ad is against AdSense TOS.

LOL

I know quite a few people will in all likelihood click on ads on my site. I've historical data to support the theory. No need to call myself a charlatan. Math (statistics) is all one needs.

Yep, as I said:

Well I must say it's been entertaining so far, which is a pleasant change from doom and gloom.
